7:49 am
built near worlddtrade center in new york city. our first caller is david. >> i feel that the only criticc who are against mosque being built are people who want to make sure that we can be sensitive to the feedl feelingsf patriots. if you don't allow them to build it, what are you going to do? say that no muslims can be in new york city. that's absurd. you should encourage the mosque and encourage others to bring healing. >> thank you for your thoughts. we appreciateeit. let's go to rebecca in pikesviile. what do you think, our first caller said, yes, it should be there? >> whaa do you say? >> well, i think it should be replaced by an interfaith center, one with a monnment shaped in the shape of a triangle with the lord's prayer in the jewish, version, the
7:50 am
christian version and the islamic version so people can see how similar the three major religions are. >> someehinn -- thank you rebecca for that. let's gg mark in bel air. what do you think about the mosque near ground zero. >> i would say definitely no. historiially muslims conquerors would build a mosque over top oo important sites of the country that they just conquered to kind of show that they this control and kknd of down size and replace the history. - think it would be seem as a victory for extremist muslim activity. >> let's go to our facebook page there. -e have several hundreds comments about this. gordon wrote in on facebook and said 9/11 is one of the biggest things that happened in u.s. history. face. build it but not there.
7:51 am
shovan on the other hand, said i think it's okay to build it ttere. the people who worked in the world trade center wereeof all nationalities and all of types of religious back grounds. it would not be built to condone terrorists. everyone of islamic background is not an extremist and we as a country cannot continue o tramt them as if they all are. >> yes, it's two blocks away. we have tooshow what freedom is really like in the u.s. so far ba far 58% of you say e% say no. very interesting. the baltimore region gets the first sonic. what people unfamiliar with the fast food chain need to know. but next, more on the president's take on the plan to build a mosque near ground zero. we areegoing to talk to

the debate over building an islamic center ann mosque in city, is getting louder. president obama said that the muslims have the same right to practice theii religion as anyone else in the country. critics jumped in and said that the comments were insensitive to those who lost lives at the world trade center. think it's wrong to put a mosque that close to ground zzro, but the same amount of people thinks that the groupe group has the ro do it. what do you thinkkabout what >> delegate mcdonough, what do you think? >> you have the freedom of religion. the church has a right to put a
7:55 am
religion. this is not a good project in terms of building bbidges of trust. we all know what happened on 9/11 and we all know who the perpetrators were, yes they were supremists, but on the other hand, this is like putting a nazi tribute center in as orb w. and there was aacatholic initiative to a put a ribute to ash wish thra and that was turnd away from the government. delegate, what do you think? >> i too, believe that ouu country is predicated on the freedom of religion is why this country got started. the law indicates that they are clearly have the right to do ttat. it may not be the best idea in the world based on the raw sensitivity that exists from 9/11. however, we cannot stick our laws and turn them into -11
7:56 am
stores. you say the law is one way. when it's a little insensitive we want to have law on our side. okay. you can't have it both ways. we can't have our cake and eat it, too. >> delegate mcdonough, let me bring you into this, because you mentioned it's insensitive and it's not a fitting tribute. there's at least one of the families of 9/11 victims who said this would be a good tribute. thethey were streamists who did what they id, all muslims are not like that. maybe this is a good way to start reconciliation nd come together. for that reason, it could be a good idea. >> let's talk about the project itself. itts a 13 story, $100 million this is a big project. >> uh-huh. >> there's a lot oo questions of who is financing this $100 million. you know, you talk about the on3 family. an overwhelming majority of the 9/11 families and the majorrty

7:58 am
but those want to take it and someone is going o twist it to their political agenda. i'm pleased that he had the fortttude to come back and try to explain it so that those that did not understand the first time will have a second bite at the apple to understand what he saiddand not to have it taken out of context. >> i'm sure we will be talkingg3 about this more. we are going to have to lee that be the last [ male announcer ] antiques can be nice.
